The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity is pleased to present "Character: Chuck Jones, Artist and Animator" from Later March through late May 2019 at the Potocki Center for the Arts in Mission Viejo, California.

This Exhibit will feature hand-painted cel art editions, fine art giclees, hand-pilled lithographs, and mixed media work from the fertile imagination and hand of Chuck Jones, Four-time Academy Award recipient and the legendary creator of the looney Tunes character Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote, Pepe Le Pew, Marvin Martian, and one of the fathers of Bugs Bunny and Daffy, Jones has been honored world-wide as a creative genius.

This exhibition will explore the relationship between Jones's fine art figure studies and his animated masterpieces. On view will be examples of work created during the "Golden Age" of animation and contemporaneous figure studies Jones created under the guidance of Donald Graham, longtime figure study professor and mentor at CalArts. 

Visit your favorite cartoon characters as they romp and cavort cavort through many of your favorite cartoons, such as "What's Opera, Doc?", "Duck Dodgers and the 24 1/2 century",

 "One Froggy Evening" and "Robin Hood Daffy". You'll be saying "what's up, doc?" in no time.
